A Kenosha man wanted for questioning in a 2013 drug case has been taken into custody in South Carolina,
Mount Pleasant police in April asked for the public’s help finding Joshua Carver, 29. He was wanted for questioning in connection to a drug case from October 2013 stemming from a call that started as a report of a loose dog.
Officers were called to a home in the 3500 block of Sheridan Road for a report of a loose dog. Police were unable to contain the dog and were forced to shoot and kill it when the dog charged at officers.
During a subsequent investigation at the home, police “recovered drugs and a significant amount of drug related equipment,” according to a press release from MPPD at the time of the original incident.
Carver was wanted for questioning in that incident and had active warrants out for his arrest as well.
Another dog living at the same residence rushed and bit a girl in March. The owner, April Carver, received a $124 citation for having a dog at large. She also reportedly told police the dog was only five months old and had not been vaccinated.
On the Mount Pleasant police Facebook page, officers posted that Carver on Sept. 5 was taken into custody in South Carolina.
When MPPD responds to our request for more information, we will update this story.
